Inline Particle Characterization Tool leverages FBRM technology.
Press Release Summary:
February 6, 2013 - Modifying focused beam reflectance technology (FBRM®) for use in settings where pneumatic motors are impractical, fully electric ParticleTrack™ E25 measures aqueous particle and droplet systems for chemical, food, consumer product, biotechnology, and mining industries. System does not require air/gas supply, allows real-time product quality optimization, promotes formulation stability, and enhances processing whether particle systems are observed in 2 or 20,000 L vessels, or pipeline flow.

New ParticleTrack(TM) E25 Provides Accessible Inline Characterization
Press release date: January 30, 2013
Based on traditional FBRM® technology yet requiring no air/gas supply, this robust FBRM probe allows real-time product-quality optimization, greater formulation stability, and enhanced processing whether particle systems are being observed in 2-liter beakers, 20,000-liter vessels, or pipeline flow. This versatility and ease-of-use is helping to put FBRM® technology in the hands of labs and production environments in industries such as mining and consumer products, where FBRM® has historically been considered a luxury.
Now, those working in non-explosive environments in almost any industry can access FBRM®’s ability to optimize processes in real-time. This includes FBRM® advances such as the ability to detect and correct for particles that are “stuck” to the probe and enhanced measurement consistency over a wider dynamic range. These improvements maximize sensitivity and data integrity and encourage more intuitive data analysis.
ParticleTrack E25 is ideal for measuring modern manufacturing processes such as crystallization and precipitation; homogenization and emulsification; and solid/liquid or liquid/solid separations including flocculation, coalescence, and flotation.
